An award to be achieved
by the individual, youth or adult, on a continuing basis, by logging hours spent, hands on, (travel time shall not be included) taking
their horses and ponies to nursing homes, parades, non-sanctioned (ASPC/AMHR/ASPR) driving events, and their own free driving time,
also non-sanctioned fun days, etc. When a certain number of hours are logged the person is given an award (example: a certificate,
a patch, pin, etc.) the larger the number of hours, the larger the award (halter,etc., keeping it reasonable). Award recipients will
be sent to the newsletter and Journal correspondent to be published. Awards shall be given at 100 hours, 250 hours, 500 hours, 1000
hours, 1500 hours, and 2000 hours. All animals used to claim hours must be registered with ASPC/AMHR/ASPR. All hours must be recorded
on preprinted log sheets which will be available upon request. It is the individual's responsibility to keep their own log sheets
and send them to the designated person. Tabulation of log sheets and reporting of award recipients to the Area VI newsletter and Journal
correspondent to be published, will be the responsibility of the awards chairperson or a person designated by the board of directors.
The reason to omit sanctioned showing time is to try to encourage those people new to small equine and that are not readily involved
in showing, to participate more in Area VI.

To be awarded to an outstanding youth in Area VI that has worked hard to promote the breed - by achieving a high number of points,
yearly. Points shall be earned by taking horses and ponies to non-show related activities and documenting these activities. The following
items will serve as documentation of the activities: snapshots, publication in newspapers, newsletters, and magazines, description
of television or radio coverage. Additional points will be awarded for publications and coverage that is circulated beyond the local
area. Each documentation that further promotes the breed will earn more points. For example; if someone takes their horse/pony to
a nursing home and documents that activity with snapshots - awarded 5 points, the local newspaper takes pictures and publishes them
- additional 5 points - additional 5 points are awarded if pictures in newspaper are accompanied by an article - 5 more points are
awarded, etc. At the end of the year the youth earning the greatest number of points is the award recipient. All animals used to accumulate
points must be registered with ASPC/AMHR/ASPR. It will be the responsibility of the individual youth to send their documentation to
the designated person on preprinted forms and tabulation of points will be the responsibility of the awards chairperson or a person
designated by the board of directors.
